Did You Know?
In addition to the retreats and programs offered by our Spiritual Growth staff, the Jesuit Center for Spiritual Growth welcomes Catholic and other ecumenical groups who are looking for a beautiful setting to conduct their own group meetings.
Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty,
my memory, my understanding
and my entire will,
All I have and call my own.
You have given all to me.
To you, Lord, I return it.
Everything is yours; do with it what you will.
Give me only your love and your grace,
That is enough for me.
—St. Ignatius of Loyola

10 AM - 4 PM
Spiritual Spa Day: Spring Day of Prayer
with Sr. Chris Koellhoffer, IHM
We have heard, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Yet how do we truly love ourselves? How do we nurture our own soul and body as we also tend to our responsibilities of caring for our world through work, family, and relationships? Since we cannot nurture others from a dry well, this day will afford us Sabbath time, a chance to assess our energy and spirit, restore balance, and move us towards wholeness and well-being through quiet, prayer, reflection, and self-care.
Arrival: 9:30-9:45 AM. The program will conclude at 4 PM.
Program begins at 10 AM and will include input from Sr. Chris, opportunities for quiet prayer, Mass, and lunch.
Cost: $50 ($25 non-refundable deposit)
